I used to have a hobby or maybe it was more of an obsession with mullet hunting. It started sometime in the early 2000’s and I wasn’t the only one. There were tons of websites with photo submissions from people all over the world, books, t-shirts, hats, even badges.
My obsession as well as that of many others died down after awhile. Don’t get me wrong, I still appreciate a good mullet – especially a well kept one. In other words, I like seeing ones where I know the person sportin’ the hairstyle is going into their local salon and saying, “Trim the sides and front, but I want to keep the length in the back.”
There is only one true mullet site on the web now, Mullet Junky. A solid site. My favorite used to be Mullets Galore, but if you click on the link, all you get is a nice portrait of a mullet and a short sign off.
Today I’m saluting all of the mullets that I have encountered and especially those I was able to catch on film. Yes – these were all taken with a 35mm camera so there isn’t much I can do in regards to quality. A lot, if not all were taken with my now husband, Ryan. Most of the time it was a group effort. I would take the picture over Ryan’s shoulder or have him pose while I would move the camera at the last second to capture the nearby mullet. We found our mullets at the beach, weddings, the zoo, the fair (you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a mullet at the fair), the grocery store and even right under our noses in the apartment complex we lived in at the time.
You need to look up Bono’s mullet from U2’s performance at Live Aid… that was the mother of all poptastic mullets.
On a slightly related note, if you haven’t already, check out People of Walmart… http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/
Be warned. You’ll be scarred.
Oh yes, I have seen People of Walmart. Those are the sites that I tend to waste hours and hours on. Sometimes it’s a good self esteem booster!
…and sometimes, like me, you hope to God you’re not seen in the background LOL
